    I am considering selling my Macbook Pro (details below) to upgrade. Best price I have found from a commercial website is $630 and I am trying to get a sense of what I could get if I sold it via Craigslist (I live in a large city).

    Macbook Pro 15" (Late 2011 - MD322LL/A - MacBookPro8,2 - A1286 - 2563*)
    Quad-Core i7 2.4 GHz
    16gb RAM
    500 GB SSD
    Hi-Res Antiglare screen
    Good condition (light scratches on body, no issues with monitor)

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    $630 is too low in my opinion just because the non-retina 13" is still selling for around 1k. However, that model still only has usb 2.0 and therefore cannot support AC WiFi because of that limitation. Depending on the big city, you should be able to ask for and expect around $850.

    Does the superdrive still work? Do all the ports still work? How long does the battery last?

    $630 is crazy low for a Quad i7 with a matte display -- I would ask $800 firm.

    Thanks for the feedback. That is more consistent with my thinking.

    Thanks for your feedback. Other than a few light exterior scratches, it is in excellent condition and everything works normally (including superdrive and all ports). Coconut Battery shows that it will charge up to 85% of its design capacity (5892 mAh out of an original 6900 mAh). Your $850 is in line with my thinking.

    One other thing I will say is that for machines as maxed out as yours, it might be worth taking to eBay. Just be sure to dot your i's and cross them T's with shipping. Keep it limited to US Buyers.
